Qatar Airways Offering 40% Bank Transfer Bonus

Qatar Airways Offering 40% Bank Transfer Bonus

13

Qatar Airways Privilege Club has just launched an awesome transfer bonus, which could also be useful for collecting other “flavors” of Avios (including with British Airways Executive Club).

Transfer bank points to Privilege Club with 40% bonus

Between June 1 and June 30, 2022, Qatar Airways is offering a bonus when you convert bank points into Privilege Club Avios:

  • Convert the equivalent of up to 20,000 Avios and receive a 20% bonus
  • Convert the equivalent of over 20,000 Avios and receive a 40% bonus

The bonus is calculated on a per-transaction basis, so you receive the 20% or 40% bonus based on how many points you transfer in one transaction, rather than cumulatively.

Participating transfer partners include the following:

Ahli Bank Qatar, Ahli United Bank, Ahlibank Oman, Air Miles, American Express, Amex Centurion Design Cards by Hyundai Card (Korea), Citibank, Commercial Bank of Qatar, Doha Bank, Dukhan Bank, Hana Members, HSBC (Greece, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Hong Kong), Kuwait Finance House, Masraf Al Rayan, Ping An E-wallet (Wanlitong), Qatar International Islamic Bank (QIIB), Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB), Qatar National Bank (QNB), CIMB, KBank, Standard Chartered Bank Singapore, BSF (Banque Saudi Fransi)

Of the eligible partners, Citi ThankYou is the only major program in the United States.

This bonus is being offered on Qatar Airways’ end, meaning you won’t see the bonus reflected directly with partners. Bonus Avios will post within 45 days of when transfered points post to your Privilege Club account (though hopefully they post much faster than that).

Use this offer to earn British Airways Avios

As of March 2022, Qatar Airways Privilege Club adopted Avios as its new rewards currency. This was an exciting development, as it’s possible to transfer Avios at a 1:1 ratio between the various programs that use this rewards currency. That includes Aer Lingus AerClub, British Airways Executive Club, and Iberia Plus.

This means that you could use this offer to indirectly convert Citi ThankYou points into British Airways Avios with a 40% bonus as well. That’s something that will no doubt interest many, but just keep in mind that the bonus won’t post instantly. Therefore this won’t be as useful to some as the 40% bonus we saw from Amex to British Airways this spring.

Use this offer to earn British Airways Avios

Bottom line

Qatar Airways Privilege Club is offering a 40% bonus when you convert bank points into Avios. This is a solid opportunity for those with Citi ThankYou points, especially since you could convert these Avios to British Airways Executive Club.

We’ve seen some awesome changes to Qatar Airways Privilege Club, and we haven’t seen many offers like this from the program in the past. Here’s to hoping that this is the start of a trend.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this Privilege Club transfer bonus?

    I know they say the bonus takes 45 days, but did anyone try this and receive the bonus already?

  2. Oonagh Cacioppo Guest

    Do the points collected via Amex Credit Cards qualify or is it only points collected in a correct bank account? Based in UK

  3. Chris Guest

    Hi, can i ask if the Citibank is only for certain countries ? My citibank credit card thank you rewards is based in Malaysia. Thank you

  4. Dave hughes Guest

    Typically not available to uk Amex points holders…. Grrrrr

  5. MrChu Guest

    And if you have the Citi Rewards + card you get 10% of transferred points back!

    1. Hamza Guest

      How? can you explain please?

    2. MrChu Guest

      That is a perk of Citi Rewards + card. If you have it in the mix of your Citi cards then any Thank you points transferred to travel partners (even ones earned on other Citi cards) get you a 10% rebate for up to 100k transferred thank you points.

    4. Victoria Guest

    Qatar Airways is not a transfer partner of Amex usa, right? I do not see Qatar in my Amex account.

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ William -- Indeed it's not, my mistake. Post updated to reflect that.

  7. A.E Guest

    Ben,

    For American Express, does this only apply to Amex USA? Wondering if us Canadians can jump in on this as well.

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ A.E -- Any global Amex partners that have Qatar Airways Privilege Club as a partner would be eligible.
